Buckley Junction Railway Station, Buckley


Buckley Junction Station consisted of the Station Master's house, booking office and waiting room and a shelter on the opposite track-side, with the signal box by Bannel Lane bridge. Behind the station building were some sidings off the old mineral line and a sizeable goods office and storage building. Next to that was a privately-owned boilermaker's works (see p.104 of the Buckley photograph book). In plate 47 referred to, the track to the left passed through all the brickworks except Hancock's and onto the docks at Connah's Quay; the track to the right passed through Hawarden and Shotton to the Steel Works when it divided into lines to Bidston and Seacombe, and through Sealand Aerodrome, Saughall and Blacon to Chester Northgate station terminus - change for Cheshire Lines for other destinations. The mineral line did not go to Shotton.
